School Community Trading

In these challenging economic times many of you will be interested to hear that school community trading is booming with sites such as http://www.schoolstrader.com/uk/independent, the free-ads website, to buy/sell anything from a puppy to a piano.

Schoolstrader is the UK's leading school community trading website for the independent sector, where parents, staff and alumni can trade with each other free of charge - everything from pets to holiday homes, bikes to musical instruments.

The site was featured recently in The Sunday Times, Which and Channel 4 News online and as a Top 50 website in The Daily Telegraph. It covers most independent school communities across the UK including ours.
